Every off-roader must know: What Went Wrong?

My view:

1. The car never reached the top of the ridge in order to cross over. I always feel that its important to ride the ridge a bit before crossing.

2. While crossing the rear of the car fish tailed causing the car to slide on the left side and then he was in a situation where the car was fighting gravity. Once the vehicle direction had turned 90 degree, it was always going to flip with the momentum.

3. Possible since the sand was churned up in the area his left front wheel got stuck which aggravated the problem of flipping.

 

Bottom line, dont fight gravity...you might escape sometimes but not all the time.

Thanks to @Asif Hussain for this contribution. What went wrong here?

Countersteering at high speed and the sand seemed very soft in that area (backside of the dune?)
